Our kids like to stop by frenchy’s whenever we vacation in CWB. I guess we return every year because we have fun whenever we stop by....but now I don’t know why. The service was slow and the food was pretty awful. The grouper (grilled) sandwich...More

Great atmosphere, great entertainment. Food was fair, a little pricey for the quality. Bar was awesome. Friendly servers.

My husband and I ate an early dinner here on a Monday night. We were seated promptly and treated well. TIP: get the She-Crab soup! TIP: Get the classic fried grouper sandwich with chips! This is what they are known for.

We ate here on the recommendation of a local and were not disappointed. I'd just go for the grilled v fried grouper as it was too greasy for me. Otherwise great food and atmosphere!

Casual and Fun place where you can get the same stones crabs as Joe’s Stone Crabs and pay 60% less. Great prices on beer and drinks and not nearly as crowded as Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill location

Wonderful hidden gem off the beat and path of busy Clearwater. Fish Tacos are to die for. Wonderful atmosphere for a group, family or just a fun meal!

Good lunch spot. It was a chilly day and we wished we would have had warmer clothes on. I would suggest the grilled fish since the fried fish was a little greasy.

This place is pretty small. A group this size would probably require separate tables. Our last visit we sat at connected picnic tables and 8 of fit comfortably. Its a small beach bar and grill. Awesome food, maybe look at... More

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
